109 Tasting Notes
Gorgeous tea. The caramel and vanilla blend to taste more like honey than cream, so it does become quite a sweet beverage. A little too sweet if I drink too much of it straight, so when that happens, I just add a dash of milk and finish off the whole pot. I’m loving the strength of the tea base as well. Go and enjoy it guys!
Smells and tastes calming…but that might be a placebo thing going on. Not much of a strong flavour to it at all – I mainly notice cinnamon. The orange peel would have provided more body but it doesn’t come across very much. I like how the fennel adds a nice bit of sweetness to the mix but I don’t think I would repurchase this as there are tastier herbals around. Still, it’s a nice caffeine-free option for a hot and healthy drink at night
I agree with the other reviewer that this has a definite note of candied cherry. In fact, I personally taste about 3.5 parts candied cherry to 1 part toffee. It is a very sweet tea on its own and nicely balanced with some milk but I wouldn’t add sugar. Tea base could have more structure, but it tastes exactly as it smells which is actually somewhat impressive for a flavoured tea. Dessert fans, this is for you!
Bought a 95c two-cup taster from the store. Smells wonderfully uplifting but when brewed, there isn’t too much to write home about. It lacks depth/complexity and I can’t help but be reminded of dishwashing liquid whenever I take a sip. Will finish my cup though. Nice if you like a light citrus green.
Simple decaf black tea with sweet vanilla. Impressed at the intensity of the vanilla and tastes like the authentic bean. It is quite sweet; a total dessert tea and I wouldn’t add sugar at all. I like the tiniest bit of milk with mine to offset the sweetness a little
Edit: some steeps have been very sweet and some have been a little bitter. I think it depends on the amount of vanilla pieces you get in each teaspoon. But generally, it tends to go a bit bitter if brewed a little too long or left by itself for a while. Easily fixed with milk/sugar though
Lovely floral aroma and slight sweet mango. Would like more bergamot but still delicious. Second time brewing, I used 1.5 teaspoons for a large cup and steeped 8 minutes but that’s because I like it strong. Dash of milk also nice
Edit: I don’t know what kind of weird day I was having when I decided to steep it 8 minutes. Third time brewing, I used a heaped teaspoon for the recommended four minutes and it was the perfect level of strength.
